as requested by ot, here is a thread for thoughts on the cws so those that are going for the first time get some ideas on what they should plan for/expect. *************** general admission tix you can get there or order, however, getting them there means going someplace there that sells them. if you want ga tix,i would suggest ordering them. be prepared to stand in the ga line to get in though for at the very least a few hours before the game. this means if you want to go to both games in one day and sit in the ga/outfield, you will have to leave the first game early and get back in line for the second game if you want to get in. with ga, you pretty much have to pick one game or the other. with reserved, lotsa luck. what few were available sold out in 10 mins on saturday. (they said 15 mins but i was online ordering and it was 10 mins for the first 8 games.) there are a few ways to get reserved. the first is if you are a booster of one of the 8 schools going and have donated out the ass whatever foundations (like taf) so you are high enough on the list to get tix through the school. given how few are available to each school, i wouldnt hold my breath. the second way is to pay the scalpers around rosenblatt. since this is the last year at rosenblatt, i have a feeling they will be asking for your first born child. as a down payment. at the cws, the way to get reserved tix is to have your ga tix ahead of time and stand in the "upgrade line" to upgrade your ga tix to reserved each morning. the ticket office for opens at 10 and you need to be in line no later than 6 am if you want a shot at the few seats available for upgrade. if it is mass chaos like it was when nebraska was there in 05, you get to go through a lottery each morning bright and early just for the opportunity to stand in line to maybe get upgrades. the best bet for reserved will be on resale sites. ebay, stubhub (which i wouldnt recommend stubhub, i have gotten burned there before). but i have the feeling be prepared to pay. best advice i can offer is if you want to go, get ga tix now and then pursue reserved tix for any games you definitely want to see. i have been in the outfield ga line for a few hours before and not gotten in. the line cut off and they quit letting people in 5 people before me. which pissed me off to no end because the shorthorn fans were cutting and jumping in line getting in and nothing was done about it. also, make hotel reservations now. i will say as much as i love the cws, those are the most disorganized people on the face of the earth!
